Transfusion Medicine: Diagnostic Standards of Care by Garrett S. Booth, Quentin Eichbaum, Pampee S. Young

The Diagnostic Standards of Care series presents common errors associated with diagnoses in clinical pathology, using case examples to illustrate effective analysis based on current evidence and standards. In addition to being a practical diagnostic guide, each volume demonstrates the use of quality assurance and the role of the pathologist in ensuring quality and patient safety.

Transfusion Medicine addresses common issues and errors seen in the blood transfusion process. The goal is to alert general practitioners and trainees to the latest scientific advances and spiraling regulations in blood transfusion as well as introduce them to the most common types of transfusion errors encountered in clinical settings.

Transfusion Medicine features:

  • Descriptions of potential errors in regulatory compliance, operational processes, and patient safety
  • Descriptions of potential errors in clinical decision making in blood transfusion, including when to premedicate patients, warfarin reversal, and the diagnostic intricacies in TRALI and TTP
  • Pocket-sized for portability
